British Heart Foundation: Clinical Study Grants

  Wednesday, 17 Nov 2021 | Funding Deadline

For clinical trials and observational studies of specific patient groups, usually costing more than £350,000 or lasting more than 3 years. The Clinical Study Grant supports funding for:

  • Interventional clinical trials: trials of specific interventions or pathways of care for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Interventions include drugs, surgery, devices, psychological, physical and educational interventions.
  • Observational studies of specific patient groups that are hypothesis led and address a defined clinical question(s) over a fixed timescale (up to 5 years). The population of interest should be a patient population, who will usually be recruited within the NHS. The study should have a predefined outcome(s) that will lead to changes in clinical management directly or will inform the development of a clinical trial to test an intervention.
  • Clinical studies can include a mechanistic evaluation, either as a substudy within a clinical trial or as part of an observational study.


Deadline for proposals: 17 November 2021 | 19 January 2022 | 11 May 2022
